Rated 4 out of 5 by AquaticLogic Unbiased review of C-360 Filter
I bought this filter in March 2011 and for the most part it has been a very efficient, quiet, and reliable filter. It's ability to clear the water equals a micron filter. It has lots of media capacity and strong flow. After a year of service the filter has begun leaking. The primer plunger had also become stuck and would not return to the raised position. Also, sometimes the filter would not reprime after a power failure. It would have to be turned off and on a few times to get the impeller to spin properly or begin to pump. The ball valves in the quick disconnect manifold leak a little bit when detached from the filter. I have since taken the filter apart to clean the o-ring on the primer plunger and grease it as well as cleaned the impeller and all the o-ring seals and regreased. Now the primer plunger works again but I still get drips coming down all sides when running. I am hoping that Marineland will replace some of the necessary parts under warranty. I have owned other Marineland Magnum canister filters and never had these problems with leaking. I hope that Marineland can address this problem because the product is great otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jdorris Very happy with results
I've gone through a number of canister filters over the years and i have never been satisfied with the quality of the products. After reading a few reviews and watching the videos available on the C-360 I decided this was the filter to try. It works great. I was having problems clearing up my water after a pump failure. This filter cleared it in one day and it has been crystal clear ever since. The one feature of this filter I think puts it a step above the rest is there is no possible way for water to bypass the filtration system. Plus the flow is excellent. I connected this to two bio wheels along with the supplied output tube. I have happy fish again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SarasotaFish Intake and return pipes are pretty horrible.
I purchased two of these filters, the 220 and the 320 and I am happy with the filter itself but the intake and return pipes that go in the tank are REALLY pathetic and there is no spraybar kit that you can buy for it. So now I am searching for a set of competitor pipes to replace the pipes that came with these filters. What a pain.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marine8541 Clean Water yet it leaks
The filter cleans the water very well however it started to leak around the handles in about 8 months. I have ordered the seal kit so hopefully that fixes it otherwise I will have to buy a new filter. I would STRONGLY recommend that you place the filter in some type of catch basin should it leak.... I would have rated this 5 stars and a yes to buy yet the leaking is of concern as it started for no reason one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharky C-530 This Canister Rocks!!!
It's an Awsome filter, no leaks, intimidating at first, but easy to set up, a small humming noise but not bad really.
The only thing missing is the carry handle that the video says each Canister has. My C-530 did not have a carry handle, wish it did, it's very heavy when filled up with water.
I would highly recommend it!
